About me

For over a decade, I’ve been coaching all genres of Road and Mountain Bike athletes in all kinds of racing events. From Time Trials to Stage Races, 100 Milers to Triathlons, Omniums, CX, 24 Solos, XCM, Track, and many more. I coach them all. 

 

To date, I’ve analyzed over 100,000 athletes files – nearly all of them wattage based. There’s not too much I haven’t seen over the years.

 

My coaching track record speaks for itself. I’ve helped countless athletes race to Regional, National, and International Podium finishes.

01. I Train

And year after year I’ve learned how to do it smarter and more efficiently. Now that I’m in my 50’s, I have to be even smarter in all aspects of my training; managing workloads and recovery is critical.

 

02. I compete

A lot of my races have been ultra-endurance MTB focused, with 30 24hr Solo races to date. Throw in a pile of 6hr, 8hr and 12hr races, Stage Races, and some Road Racing as well. I’ve seen a few things along the way.

03. I coach

Training and racing has taught me a lot about coaching. Coaching a lot of athletes has taught me a ton about training and racing. Nearly every week of the year I have an athlete racing somewhere in the world. It’s not uncommon for me to see twenty or thirty race files per week. Preparing athletes for that many races, and being exposed to hundreds of uploaded training files per week helps keeps my analysis skills fresh and sharp. I love training and competing, and I really love coaching.
